Milligan, Mary Ann
Mary A. Milligan was born in Platte County, Missouri, March 6th, 1842, and died at her residence in Nelson, Nebraska, on June 12th, 1908, aged 66 years, 4 months and 6 days. She moved with her parents to Belmont county, Ohio in 1847 where the family lived until the fall of 1857, when they moved to Richland county, Wisconsin. In November 1860 she was married to Wm. Crandell and to this union two children were born; one, Mathias Crandell of Nelson, Nebr., still survives her, while the other died in infancy. On November 7th, 1867 deceased was united in marriage to James C. Reeve, to which union four children were born, all of whom are living. George G. Reeve, John C. Reeve, Charles B. Reeve, and Mrs. Amanda Dunken. Mrs. Reeve moved with her husband to Nelson, Neb., on June 8th, 1874, and she continued to reside here till the time of her death.
During her residence in Nelson she united with the First Baptist church there in January 1891 and lived in that faith till her death. She had a bright Christian experience and in all her times of sickness and suffering it was quite clear to all around her that she enjoyed the fellowship and favor of her Lord. She bore a great deal of pain without murmur or complaint and her patience was a great inspiration to her loved ones. When health permitted she was a frequent worshiper at the Methodist church in Nelson, for whose pastor and people she had a warm regard. She will be missed in the congregation and in the home but the influence of her life will be with us. We must follow her to the Homeland.
There was a very large attendance at the funeral services in the Methodist church, Nelson last Sunday afternoon. The Oddfellows and Rebekahs, of which latter Order Grandma Reeve was a member, formed a guard of honor at the house and marched in a body to the church where the ladies of the w. R. C. were also present. The church was nicely decorated with flowers and the Stars and Stripes.
The pastor, Rev. J. Henry Stitt preached from the text, “I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness. “Psalm 17:15. The Oddfellows and Rebekahs also marched to the Nelson cemetery, and before the casket was placed in it s resting place the beautiful symbolic ceremony was preformed by these two Orders of marching two and two with linked fingers past the remains of the departed sister. Sister C. E. Jensen, Sister Kinney and Sister Gee, as Nobel Grand, Vice Grand, and Chaplain, then read the beautiful burial service of the Rebekahs, and after all had marched around the grace and deposited sprigs of evergreen, the benediction was pronounced by the minister, and the mortal remains of our beloved mother and sister were left to await the glorious resurrection, “when the corruptible bodies of those who sleep in him shall be raised and made like unto His own glorious body, according to the mighty working whereby He is able to subdue all things unto Himself.”
